a solitary activity. sharing a book, however, is a very different thing. it's something karen discovered when she jumped in on a growing trend, but she and many others are finding tonight's bay area proud. if your travels have taken you through san jose, you may have noticed a few new libraries popping up. those built with bond money, but also that one built in ron's garage. the one that sits atop daughter karen's fence. >> you put the harry potter books in there. >> it's called a little free library and karen's is far from the only one. part of a trend started in wisconsin a few years ago, there are now some 6,000 little free libraries around the world. more popping up in the bay area each week. and while each one is home made and therefore unique, the concept is what links them together. take a book, return a book. that's it. a library with no due dates, no late fees, and no closing hours. karen put hers up a few weeks ago, she knew she had done the right thing after her first customer stopped by, a little neighbor boy. her put his dr. seuss book in, and took another one out and left, and i
forced many ethnic karens to flee. deborah and her family crossed into thailand in 1984. last year the two sides agreed to a cease-fire for the first time since fighting began. despite sporadic crashes, real strides for reconciliation are gaining momentum. at this college set up by deborah's group, most students move to the united states or australia after graduation. others choose to stay in thailand to teach refugee children. but recently some students say they want to return to myanmar. >> i want to be a doctor. i will help to improve the lives of karen people. i want to open up a hospital there. >> reporter: deborah believes if myanmar continues to reform young karens will have the chance to return in the near future. she's speeding up preparations for when that day comes. the group is compiling a new textbook for elementary school first-graders. they have new programs to think about. in the camps children study karen language and history. but in myanmar the vast majority of the population is burmese. schools in myanmar have no provisions for teaching karen language. and offici
to talk about this, let's bring in our panel, we have karen finney, and former dnc communications director, we have guy benson, political editor for and mark simone wor radio talk show host. good evening, everybody. >> hey, larry. >> guy benson, let me start with you. if you're talking about restricting automatic guns. if you're talking about restricting these 100-bullet magazine cartridges and so forth, you can't do that by executive. >> well, i totally agree with that. and you are sometimes starting to hear automatic weapons con flated with semiautomatic weapons conflated with automatic assault weapons. some of the jargon that goes on. you're 100% right, i'm not a conservative when it comes to gun-related issues. i think that any restriction has to meet a constitutional test. and also the test of whether or not it'll actually remedy the problem that presents itself. if we're going to do this, at least do it the way that governor cuomo is doing it, through the legislative process, rather than the way the president has attempted to do it as he has time and again where hep find

. the one that sits atop daughter karen adamsky's fence. >> i thought it was cool. >> did you put the "harry potter" books in there? >> reporter: it is called the "little free library." karen's is far from the only one. part of a trend started in wisconsin just a few year ago, there are now some 6,000 little free libraries around the world. more popping up in the bay area each week. and while each one is home made and, therefore, unique, the concept is what links them together. take a book, return a book. that's it. a library with no due dates, no late fees, and no closing hours. karen put hers up just a few weeks ago. she knew she had done the right thing after her first customer stopped by. a little neighbor boy. >> he put his dr. seuss back in and took another and left. i thought, oh, there was just -- it was so cool. >> reporter: karen has been amazed at just how much traffic her little library has gotten since then. >> it gets visited probably ten times a day. >> reporter: across town, elizabeth harold put her library up just a few months ago. she says it has proven a simple way to not
wrote to the president following the tragedy. joining me, karen finney, washington bureau chief david corn, and assistant editor for "fortune," leigh gallagher. he and the vice president outlined other proposals they hope will put an end to incidents like the sandy hook shooting. >> i have no illusions about what we're up against or how hard the task is in front of us, but i also have never seen a nation's conscience so shaken by what happened at sandy hook. the world has changed, and it's demanding action. >> what we should be thinking about is our responsibility to care for them and shield them from harm and give them the tools they need to grow up and do everything that they are capable of doing, not just to pursue their own dreams, but to help build this country. this is our first task as a society. i'm putting forward a specific set of proposals based on the work of joe's task force, and in the days ahead, i intend to use whatever weight this office holds to make them a reality. because while there is no law or set of laws that can prevent every senseless act of violence complete
know that karen mccarthy is going to introduce symbolic -- largely symbolic legislation on the house side. the senate side we're expecting dianne feinstein to introduce her legislation around the time of the inaugural. is something meaningful going to happen on guns this year? >> i hope so. the president has appointed joe biden to be head of this commission, and he believes something reasonable. you know, you can put reasonable limits on who gets guns without interfering with the legitimate second amendment rights that are enshrined in the constitution. we on the liberal side of things have to accept that. you can put reasonable limits on any amendment. first amendment, you can't scream fire falsely in a theater. those are limits on the first amendment. limits on the second amendment that prohibit criminals, the mentally infirmed, spousal abusers from getting guns and tightening up those laws as congresswoman mccarthy's legislation does, and i carry that in the senate, make reasonable sense, and i hope we can come together in the middle. not extreme legislation that will scare those
's bring in karen finney, the hill columnist and former dnc director. jennifer ruben, author of "the washington post" right turn blog. peter souterman, reason magazine senior editor. karen, i think his top priority, or nearly so, are going to be immigration reform and gun control, both of which are very weak spots for the republican party. what is your thought? >> you know what, larry? we agree. although i would add to that that obviously given the structure of the so called deal that we got over the course of the last 24 hours, part two, is going to clearly be at the top of the agenda starting next week, and obviously with the debt ceiling. so that sort of economic piece. but then in addition to that, absolutely, immigration reform. and i would call it gun safety because i don't think there's much control going on, will absolutely have to stay at the top of the list. >> and jen, let's leave the economic stuff aside. we've done the whole show on that and sick of the fiscal cliff. i think the republicans have got a serious problem on immigration reform, ok? they're much too restrictiv
." >>> joining me today, msnbc political analyst and former dnc communications director karen finney. senior political reporter at politico, maggie haberman. and mr. sunday morning himself, we say it so officially here, editor of "the new york times" magazine, hugo lindgren. sam stein is caught on a train somewhere between newark and penn station. moving on, what started as praise for secretary clinton's tenure as secretary of state soon evolved into a partisan debate with republicans demanding to know if the administration misled the american public over benghazi. >> we were misled there were supposedly protests and something sprang out of that, assaults sprang out of that. that was easily ascertained that was not the fact, and the american people could have known that within days, and they didn't know that. >> with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. was it because of protests or guys out on a walk one night decided to kill some americans. what difference, at this point, does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from
druker, associate politics editor for roll call. msnbc political analyst, karen finny. columnist for the hill. republican strategist alice stork. i want to start out right away playing for everybody how senator john mccain, also a member of the immigration 8, talked about what this bipartisan plan means and also what it means for the gop. take a listen. >> i'll give you a little straight talk. look at the last election. look at the last election. we are losing dramatically the hispanic vote, which we think should be ours for a variety of reasons. >> alice, for a variety of reasons it was not. mainly because of the anti-immigration rhetoric that was doled out by the standard bear. mitt romney all through 2012. can this reverse that course? >> oh, it sure can. we learned a lesson. i think this is a great first step. the framework for this plan being that it's a good consensus of republicans and democrats. it's a great start. i think victoria hit on it. senator rubio also hit on it. fairness is critical in this. the framers of this immigration plan say this is tough, but it's fair.
's karen finney who served as deputy press secretary to clinton, and press secretary, co-authoring a book about the 2016 prospects. karen finney, what do you know to be the truth here about hillary clinton's feelings about president obama? and explain to us how people can get over the first clip, in what we showed about them running against each other. >> people don't realize it, but the club of people who have been either president or first lady is very, very small. so in many ways, hillary clinton is one of the few people, her husband being another one close to this parent who really understands in a very visceral personality level what it is to be president. what it is to try to raise children in the white house. what it is to try to make decisions on a daily basis. so i believe that their friendship is very sincere, because it is part of the reason that you see presidents, former presidents become friends after they have left the white house. because again, there are only a few people who really understand what that is really like. and what the challenges are really like. so i think i
, georgia, kasim reed, karen, former dnc communications director and now msnbc political analyst and john rally. so nice to have you all here. >> good morning. >> i'm going to start with you, karen. this is the deal. on the one hand, we reelected president obama as a country that's a step toward continuing his policies. >> yep. >> but the question of legacy is a question of the strength of the party. what is president obama likely to leave behind? >> you mentioned the key things. howard dean had the right description, build from the ground up. make sure grass roots is strong, fill the bench of talent, mayors, governors, state legislative races. that's where a lot of legislation gets passed that impacts, hello, say vaginal probe. >> they can say that in virginia, we know that. >> making sure that pipeline of talent, also, in terms of the technology and the data bases and the expertise, leaving the dnc, the actual infrastructure in place and available to candidates and available to the party is really critical. the best example i can give you is look what happened to the republicans. karl r

from washington msnbc political analyst karen finney, and democratic strategist julian epstein. karen, if i might begin with you, the president of the nra, david keene, says an assault weapons ban would never make it through congress and that any limits on high capacity ammunition clips would also fail and larry pratt h executive director of the gun owners of america, says background checks are a complete waste of time. so why don't we all now go home and look forward to the next mass shooting. >> yeah. we might as well. you know what? and while we're at it let's give up on the debt ceiling, give up on health care implementation. you know, why bother? we're not going to solve any problems because it's going to be too hard to ask our members of congress to do their job? here is the thing though, you know, look at how intensified and ugly the rhetoric got last week, talks of insurrection and 1776 and stalin and hitler and then over the weekend these pronouncements that it's not going to happen, no way. what that tells you they're becoming increasingly desperate because there's also a ga
